Dr. Johnny Fever on WKRP In Cincinnati always had Steal Your Face at the front of his album stack.

In Half Baked, the spirit of Jerry is summoned (okay, so the guys in the movie were more than half-baked, but it's still pretty entertaining in a highly ridiculous way).

Another stoner thing: in Up In Smoke, Chong is mistaken for Jerry. Cheech says, "I'm Santana!"

Jerry helped foot the bill to produce the documentary, "Hell's Angels Forever," and appears in it.

Jerry and Phil in Gimme Shelter arriving at Altamont---when told that the Hell's Angels were beating people up, Phil says, "That's not right."

Here's a YouTube of Phil & Friends' appearance on Nash Bridges in '01. Muy bueno, except for the violence that's part of the episode's story line.

You know, you make an excellent point. I need to get back where the wind don't blow so strange.

That's funny. I now remember the great episode when Johnny became "riptide". He wants to switch back to Fever and the lady producing the TV show tells him, "We all love the grateful dead, sometime we'll all sit around and get mellow. But not on my show"

Thanks for the flashback from a great and under appreciated TV show.

You're welcome. I don't remember seeing that episode.

I just modified that post, lobster---something to see there, if you haven't done so already.

I'll go check it out. The riptide episode has many fans divided. I love it. Basically a "dance show" hires johnny to host and he slowly transforms into "riptide" an obnoxious TV host. It's a Howard Hesseman vehicle because he's playing 2 characters through the whole thing
